Try These Techniques For Distressing Denim


Here in NYC, we’re slowly beginning to daydream about the days where we don’t have to layer on three pairs of tights to leave the house, and while we specialize in expert denim repair, our readers know we love a stylish gaping hole in the knee of our jeans once in a while, too.

A Pair & A Spare recently ran a great post detailing some of their denim DIY distress experiments, using materials like sandpaper, tweezers, and a cheese grater. Check out the results, and try some of them for yourself: Techniques For Distressing Denim.

How To Transition Your Denim Into Spring


It’s finally March, and while the cold season is still churning out nearly intolerable days, you may have begun to wonder how to transition your denim into spring. One of our favorite bloggers, Sincerely Jules, illustrates the perfect way to bring your layered wintered look into spring with a pair of white destroyed denim skinny jeans and a blush-hued sweatshirt. She ties her chambray shirt around her waist and tops the whole thing off with epic jeweled earrings. We’re in love!

The break down?

Trade in darker denim hues for whites and pastels.

Mix rosy hues with light colored outerwear.

Tie previously worn layers, like a chambray shirt, around your waist.

Keep it sweet by mixing destroyed denim with epic earrings.

Denim Review: American Eagle Sky High Jegging


Question: What’s cooler than a pair of light wash, flawlessly distressed jeans that fit like a glove and go with everything in your fall wardrobe? Answer? Nothing. MC recently received a pair of American Eagle Outfitters Sky High Jeggings from the AE vintage collection, and… well, she hasn’t taken them off ever since. These jeans are AE’s newest fit (and their highest rise, which we love), designed to look like a pair of well-worn vintage jeans, with all the comfort of a denim legging.

denim review american eagle

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

“Obsessed.”

Where/when would you wear these?

For me, these are the ultimate fall jeans. The sitting-in-coffee-shops, lattes-and-laptops, cozy-on-a-cool day jeans. I’ll be wearing them with my favorite oversize sweaters as often as with my tailored fall jackets. There’s enough distressed action happening above the knee for them to look awesome with knee-high boots, too.

And by the way, they come in 6 washes, so go ahead and try not to find a pair you can’t live without.

How’s the fit?

The high rise is exactly where I want it, and the ankles taper in perfectly. One pet peeve of mine is having too much fabric at the hem (which a bit of Denim Therapy’s hemming and tailoring can take care of), but I love when I try on a pair of jeans and this issue is pre-solved for me.

What’s Cooler Than Jeans Distressed By Lions? Um, Nothing.


Leave it to Japan’s denim masters to come up with a massively inventive, super cool new way to get your jeans distressed. Throw ‘em in the lion’s den! Sound extreme? Kamine Zoo in Japan let the wildlife do their thing with jeans this summer. Whatever was left of the denim was sewn together into new pairs (because let’s face it, these wild cats are not just strategically distressing the knees). This was all part of a fundraising effort to raise money for the World Wildlife Foundation and the zoo itself. Cool, huh?

See the finished jeans below:

Of course, you’re welcome to go toss your jeans in with the animals at the local zoo. Just don’t expect anyone else to go fetch them for you.

See the full story here and more photos of the distressing process here.
